    Well, what is temptation?
    eg. rather than concentrating on what we are saying (as if we are talking to G-d meaningfully), we might be thinking about what we are having for dinner etc.

    ..and BTW, G-d is not in need of our prayers, but we are in need of cultivating our relationship with Him.
    I like the OP by @ben :)
    He starts off by quoting "Isaiah" from the OT.
    He also suggests that if One G-d would suffice, then a second or third would be supperflous.
    If One G-d was not sufficient, He is not perfect and could not be consider a deity :)

  5. For some strange reason a episode from the life of Oscar Wilde popped into my mind after reading the above. From when he was in Jail and endured repeated visits from a well intentioned vicar.....

    There had been one unfortunate incident when the clergyman had responded to Wilde’s complaint that his cell window gave no view of the sky with the pious observation, ‘Let your mind dwell not on the clouds, but on Him who is above the clouds’; at which Wilde, losing his temper, had pushed him towards the door, shouting ‘get out you damned fool’.
